What a cutie!

On the way home from the movies tonight there was a scorpion crossing the street in front of the house, big enough to draw my attention as I was driving. The wife wanted me to run over it... girls:)sphss

they are called windscorpions. I used to call them vinegarones (but that is a different species than the windscorpions). I see them quite often, sometimes they get into the house. Suckers are fast too! Nonvenomous.

GoJoe is right...
They are also known as:
Their common names include camel spider, wind scorpion, sun scorpion and sun spider. In southern Africa they are known by a host of names including red romans, haarskeerders and baarskeerders, the latter two relating to the belief they use their formidable jaws to clip hair from humans and animals to line their subterranean nests.[1]

Solifugae are not true spiders, which are from a different order, Araneae. Like scorpions and harvestmen, they belong to a distinct arachnid order.

and to answer BBD, are you kidding me I told her that and I then told her to buck up and called her a nancy girl if she did not kill it...now her answer to me was not a surprise lol :D

OH and this was in Boulder City, NV

Spiders dont bother me but the thought of this thing getting sprayed with comercial bug killer then taking a nice walk about 25 feet away then up a block wall and jumping over it...that tells me they are a tough son of a biatch........must be from the bad part of town and used to pepper spray...:D
